Georgian MFA Expresses ‘Extreme Concern’ over Mariupol Shelling in Ukraine
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 25 Jan.'15 / 01:12

The Georgian Foreign Ministry voiced its “extreme concern over shelling of civilian residential areas of the Ukrainian city of Mariupol from the separatist-controlled territories” on January 24.

According to the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine at least 20 people died and 75 were wounded as a result of attack by Grad and Uragan rockets in Mariupol, fired from the areas controlled by Russia-backed separatists.

“The rise in civilian casualties as a result of recent attacks in the Ukrainian cities of Donetsk, Volnovakha and Mariupol is especially alarming, which further deteriorates already extremely difficult situation in the eastern Ukraine,” the Georgian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

“We believe that deliberate use of destructive weaponry against civilian populated areas requires an immediate reaction from the international community and each of this case should be promptly investigated,” the Georgian Foreign Ministry said.

“The Georgian Foreign Ministry expresses its solidarity towards the Ukrainian people, offers its sympathy to families of the victims,” it said.
